    I purchased this book after talking with another mom who homeschools her children. I've been considering homeschooling my children this next year and choosing curriculum seemed overwhelming. She used this book to teach all four of her sons to read. I was intimidated by this book, though, because I know how to read and have a BA in English. However, when I went through public school, I never understood or grasped the whole vowel sounds. I don't know what a short vowel is nor a long vowel. So, I was scared. However, I've been looking through this book and am actually learning, at 31, what short and long vowels are and the sounds they make. It's simple and isn't as intimidating as I thought. So, if I can learn something new at 31 then I know this would be good for all children. I've already covered a couple of lessons with my daughter, who is already reading but guesses at new words in books rather than sounding them out. She will be finishing kindergarten this May and has learned the whole "sight" words method. However, her Pre-K teacher actually taught her the sounds of vowels which she recognizes when I go over a lesson with her. My example of why sight words don't always work is the difference between "there" and "three." When she sees the word "three" in a book she always says "there" when I say no, try again, she knows its the other word, "three." So I went over the lesson for words with "ee" to, hopefully, get her to recognize the word "three" when reading and actually understand the reason behind the sounds. I do agree that phonics is best because I teach my daughter that you will always come across new words, in any book you read, and will need to know how to sound them out. Sorry for the long review but, hopefully, it is helpful.

    The How to Handbook for Teaching Your Child to Rea

    Jessie Wise's "The Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading" is a "how to handbook" on teaching your child to read.

    Jessie's approach to teaching reading is simple: using the systematic method of old fashioned phonics.

    The book is divided into three sections: Preface, Introduction: How I Came to the Conclusion That Ordinary Parents Need to Teach Reading, Part 1: The Lessons which consists of 25 sections and 231 lessons in old fashioned phonics. Part 2: Additional Material for the Ordinary Parent: Pre Reading, Managing a Reading Session, Encouraging a Child to be a Reader, Questions and Answers for the Ordinary Parent, Remedial Reading with an Older Child, Index to the Lessons and Key to Phonetic Symbols.

    The book accompanied with McGuffey Eclectic Readers (the editions published by Wiley & Sons) when used frequently, patiently and consistently will teach the lifetime skill of reading.

    Tried "Teach your child to read in 100 easy lessons" which only confused my child. So I gave up on that one and bought this book based on another mom's recommendation. These lessons are very simple and to the point. They have made it very easy for me to teach my child to read. I must say, however that the stories they have included to practice the new sounds for each lesson are poorly written and awkward sounding, so I have been supplementing with real books that she can actually enjoy.

    I have used this book to teach my daughter to read and am currently using it again to teach my son. It's great! I have friends that have used 100 Easy Lessons and they've liked this better. I love that it's scripted so that I don't feel like I'm forgetting to teach them something.:) and my daughter reads like a champ! I'm just so impressed with how well both of them are doing and it's so easy!
